The following obituary appeared in volume five:

Harold Foster Strickland studied at Charing Cross Hospital and qualified with the Conjoint Board Diploma in 1905. He held posts as house surgeon at Charing Cross Hospital, and also at the Royal National Orthopaedic Hospital and passed the FRCS examination in 1912. During the first world war he was a Captain in the RAMC and worked as a specialist in limb surgery at Queen Mary's Hospital, Roehampton. He was promoted later to Temporary Major, RAMC.

Strickland practised in London, and as he took the LDSRCS in 1929 he must have switched his interest to dental surgery. Later he went to live at Singleborough in Buckinghamshire, but finally moved to Pulborough in Sussex. He died on 12 December 1959.
